Dandruff is a condition that is characterized by an itchy scalp that results in flakey residue. While we can all agree that dandruff sucks, more importantly, here are the three top ways to stop dandruff for good. The first important step in preventing dandruff is to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Consuming enough zinc, Omega-3 acids and B Vitamins will all help promote healthier hair. Be sure to avoid eating excessive yeast and sugar. Studies suggest that dandruff is partially caused by a fungus that thrives in yeasty environments. Another important way to stop dandruff is to limit your use of hair styling products and be careful about the ones you choose to invest in. Also, seek out a shampoo designed specifically to treat and stop dandruff. Read
